Aluminium Patio Doors

Aluminium doors are known for their sleek and modern appearance. They offer a contemporary look that can enhance the aesthetic appeal of any home. Aluminium is a lightweight and robust material, making it a durable choice for patio doors. It is also highly resistant to corrosion or rusting, which is especially beneficial for homes located in coastal areas or areas with harsh weather conditions.

One key advantage of aluminium patio doors is their slimline frames. The slim frames allow for larger glass panels, which means more natural light can enter your home. This can create a bright and airy living space, making your home feel more spacious and inviting. Additionally, our slimline aluminium sliding doors offer excellent thermal performance thanks to their hidden polyamide thermal breaks, helping to keep your home well-insulated and energy-efficient.

uPVC Patio Doors

Modern uPVC doors are a popular choice among homeowners due to their affordability and low maintenance requirements. uPVC is a lightweight material that offers good insulation properties, helping to keep homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. uPVC patio doors are also available in a wide range of styles and finishes, allowing you to find the perfect match for your home's aesthetic. At Patio Sliders by Deceuninck, we’re number one for colour and have 30+ colourways available from stock at swift lead times. 

While uPVC patio doors may not have the same sleek appearance as aluminium doors, they offer their own set of benefits. uPVC doors are highly durable and resistant to rot, rust, and fading. They are also easy to clean and require minimal maintenance. Additionally, uPVC patio doors provide enhanced security features, including multi-point locking systems, to keep your home safe and secure. For example, our Slider24+ uPVC patio sliding door is fully PAS24 certified, and has been heavily tested to meet such an accreditation. 

Which Is Better, uPVC or Aluminium Patio Doors?

The choice between aluminium and uPVC patio doors ultimately depends on the homeowners' personal preferences and the specific needs of their home. If you prioritize a modern and sleek look and excellent thermal performance, aluminium patio doors may be the best option for you. On the other hand, if affordability, low maintenance, and enhanced security are your main concerns, uPVC patio doors may be the better choice. Whichever choice, each of these door systems can be perfect solutions for internal doors or external doors!
